1 Answer 1


You can't directly access field in this way because if field is not in layout salesforce does not store its value.

So now you have three options.

  1. Add field on page layout and then refer here.

  2. Query the field using sforce here and then check the value.

  3. Or call an external webservice(Apex class) and then do the processing there.

I suggest go with option 1 or 2.

  • Resolve this problem by writing webservice class then calling it from javascript button. Feb 25, 2016 at 19:07
